New Sony computer boasts 1,000 gigabytes of storage


Japan's Sony Corp. will begin selling a computer and home-server system in Japan with 1,000 gigabytes of hard-drive storage -- enough to record six TV channels for a week straight -- the company said.

Vaio Type X, set to go on sale Nov. 20, will sell for about 520,000 yen (US$4,700; euro 3,800), Sony spokesman Shinji Obana said Wednesday.

"The best part is that you can freely choose what you want to watch without having to worry about what you might have missed,'' he said.

There are no plans to market the computer overseas, Obana said.

Recorded programs are displayed as a thumbnail TV guide that Sony calls Time Machine View. The shows can also be grouped by categories such as sports or sitcoms, Sony said.

The machine has six analog TV tuners that can record six channels at once for a week at 19 hours of programming a day, or five and a half days of continuous recording. It also has a regular personal computer tuner for recording a seventh channel.

The oldest recordings are automatically deleted unless they are saved to make room for new recordings.

The Vaio Type X is on display at the CEATEC electronics show this week in Chiba, a Tokyo suburb.
